I simply don't have the desire to argue with people who think that a quick glance down/up at something (and your windshield is still in your peripheral vision) is the same as interacting with a device which requires concentration to see what's on the screen and tap the right spot (potentially multiple times).  The proof is in the accident rate increase due to phone/device usage while driving. But I'm sure many people will waste money on lawsuits which argue every letter of...
 No, I fully understand that you're taking things to an absurd end to try and prove a point.  The trouble is that I see so much stupidity in the world nowadays that I don't even want to put such ideas out there for fear that they'll become something that some people accept as fact and use in lawsuits (this is where the sarcasm is truly lost).  Yes, I've seen those.  I assumed that it's either the passenger in the cop car using them, or the driver only used them when...
And here we go with the legal analysis/loophole finding which is the heart of wasting money in the legal system.  Common sense just doesn't apply anymore -- everyone would rather waste time & money over mental exercises like this.
 My car is actually almost 5 years old now, and worth far less than $40k (probably around half that).  It's possible to get cars which have these types of controls for a reasonable price.  Even the bargain car brands have them as options nowadays.
 Again, I can control all of those using my steering wheel quite easily without taking my eyes off the road.  My car also has voice commands which can do those things.  This is the reason why I bought a modern car. As for checking my child, I use the rear view mirror.  Which, technically is taking my eyes off the road, but since it's at the top of my windshield, I still can see things happening on the road.  If there's something which needs to be dealt with for my child, I...
Nope, my steering wheel control and Siri work just fine.  And yes, I would love to be able to elect people who make the legal system more efficient.
I have a button on my steering wheel which can be used to change the song on my music system.  And, as others have pointed out, you can use voice control via Siri.  Both of which don't require you to take your eyes off the road (as using the Apple Watch itself does).
Some of the discussions in this thread are unbelievably stupid.   To the people who want to try and find a loophole in the wording of the legislation so that it's legal to use an Apple Watch while driving (even while stopped): you are the reason why we waste billions of dollars on our legal system (court cases, amending laws to close loopholes, etc).  Money which could be put to something far more useful.  The next time you complain about high taxes, think about the fact...
Yup, that's the exact page I found when I did my research.  HTML Media Capture can only take a single picture or record to a file (as stated on that page).  WebRTC (getUserMedia()) looks the most promising, but it's only supported by certain browsers (and limiting myself to Chrome isn't an option).  So again, currently still a wall for those of us who work cross-platform. Thinking ahead, what if I want to take advantage of the force touch trackpad on MacBooks (I've worked...
 I'm talking about actually creating a web application (using standard HTML + JavaScript) which can do this.  Obviously if you use Flash or Java it's possible, but then you're limiting your web app to only working on desktop computers.  AFAICT, there are no standard, cross-platform, web technologies which can do it. This is why I end up sticking with native application development: I always seem to run into limitations when I try to do things using web technologies.
